make me different. Don't make me like everyone else,’” she remembers. Hammack is indeed
refreshingly different. She’s a country expressionist, a grungy firebrand and a spiritual seeker. And at
only 24, she has already packed a full life into just a few years, using fake IDs to get gigs around South
Georgia, turning down a college scholarship for a love that burned out just a few months later, sleeping
in her car when she arrived in Nashville and then losing her home in an electrical fire.
Tested by the fire, Caylee Hammack has been molded into an artist with incredible depth and a
powerhouse voice that can effortlessly veer from fiery and demanding to quiet and vulnerable. Her life
experience and relentless curiosity have coalesced into a country cocktail that’s rooted in tradition but
expands with shards of modern pop and rock. Her self-penned songs tug on her own life story – bad
decisions, secret affairs, broken hearts, a quirky family lineage – as she invariably turns the lemons of
her daring life into sonic lemonade.
The soulful “Family Tree” is the debut track from her forthcoming album, which she both co-wrote and
co-produced. For more information, visit www.cayleehammack.com.
